SOURCE: My iMac is not recognizing my CD/DVD-RW drive

Install your startup CD and restart the computer holding down the "C" if your computer starts off of it, the CD player is okay and you have a software problem, if does not start off the CD the CD/DVD needs to be replaced

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized


Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

Anything I have recorded onto DVD from TV wont play on any other machines. It will only play on this machine I recorded on. It is the same make and model mentioned here.


If you're not using DVD+RW blanks (VERBATIM work fine), then try them. DVD-RW blanks will not play on any machine but the one that recorded the disk (according to the manual.)

3) Scroll down, select "Finalize", press "OK"

Recorded dvds wont play in other dvd players


You have to finalize the disc. if the disc goes to the end it will finalize the disc automatically. If there is some part of the disc not used you have to do it yourself. IN DVD MODE PRESS SETUP, THEN DISC EDIT, THEN FINALIZE. FINALLY PRESS YES. That should do it.

Recordes but dont play back


before you can watch a recorded DVD on another DVD player you must finalize the disc. to finalize the disc put the recorded disc into the DVD recorder, when the DVD loads it will show the titles that are recorded on the DVD on the screen
push the stop button it is the button with the square on it. the screen will go blank or it may let you watch whatever tv channel you are on if you have your tv ran through the recorder, push the setup buton a new screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight disc edit, press ok another screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight "finalize", press "ok" it is the button in the middle of the arrow keys
scroll up and highlight "yes" press "ok" the recorder will finalize the disc and it can be watched on any DVD player, just remember when you finalize a disc you cannot add anything else to the disc.

NONFINALIZED DVD'S THAT ONCE PLAYED WILL NO LONGER PLAY


This seems to happen with alot of dvd recorders especially if discs left unfinalised for long periods of time.This happens on all makes of recorders not just your model.Also the quality of the dvds being used can be the problem.How old is your recorder as the only other problem which could cause this is the laser losing power

Can't record DVDs


OK. Finally "solved" this problem. You must use the brand name "Maxell" DVD disks, 2x or 4x (maybe 8x). Do not use variable speed disks (e.g. 1x--4x) or 16x. Walmart carries these!

The DVR -RW 2x finally got mine to record. I didn't think this would work, but it did. I am still experimenting with it. Had to download (free) VLC player to get it to play on my computer. Works fine in other DVD players.

Credits to the Sears' repairman, the guy at F., and my patience!
